DEVELOP addresses a wide array of environmental and public policy issues by partnering with a diverse group of end users. This partnership conducts interdisciplinary research projects that apply the lens of NASA Earth observations to community concerns around the globe. DEVELOP is NASA’s answer to society’s need for rapid, reliable, and responsive application of the agency’s Earth observations for data-driven decision making.
In the summer of 2022, DEVELOP conducted 27 feasibility studies focused on the application of satellite data to address real-world issues and inform future action. Small teams of participants collaborated with partner organizations to co-develop solutions tailored to end user decision-making processes and introduce the capabilities and benefits of Earth observations. This booklet highlights those projects - enjoy!
